Mariah Carey rejects reports of Jay-Z feud, cursing ‘people who make up these lies’
“The only ‘explosive’ situation I’d ever ‘get into’ with Hov is a creative tangent, such as our #1 song ‘Heartbreaker’!! To the people who make up these lies I say ‘Poof! —Vamoose, sonofa*****'!,” Carey tweeted, including a clip from the video of the pair’s 1999 collaboration, “Heartbreaker.”
The Sun had reported Friday that Carey, who has been with Jay-Z’s management company, Roc Nation, for more than three years, had “sensationally quit” after a “blazing row between the two music superstars.”
‘The Meaning of Mariah Carey,’ the pop star’s tell-some memoir, sparkles and entertains and explains its subject, despite a few too many I-don’t-know-hers.
The report quoted a “source close to the situation” as saying the two had “an explosive meeting that did not go well at all” and Carey would “formally depart in the next few weeks.”
One wrote, “Mariah, I don’t even waste my time neither believing these tabloids nor fueling their nonsense, but I can’t deny I love when you come and put them in their places # POW”
Carey’s next announced project is a single, “Somewhat Loved,” with the iconic production duo of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis for the upcoming “Jam & Lewis: Volume 1.”
